Easter rail changes as London Bridge closes

Rail passengers hoping to travel to or via London Bridge over Easter have been advised to check before they travel as the station is closed for all four holiday days.

Network Rail continues to rebuild London Bridge station as part of the Thameslink Programme.

Part of this work requires engineering work to upgrade the track and signalling systems in and around the station, and work is taking place this Easter weekend (Friday 18th to Monday 21st April inclusive).

As a result, no Southern services will call at London Bridge on these days.

Southern services that normally call at London Bridge will be heavily revised, and passengers should check their options before they travel and allow extra time for their journeys.

There are also some engineering works on other parts of the Southern network over the Easter holidays including at Southampton Central station over all four days:

Between Battersea Park and Balham

Between South Croydon and Oxted

Between Plumpton and Glynde

Passengers who are affected can find out about their options using the National Rail Enquiries Journey Planner or by calling 08457 48 49 50.

For example, trains between London Bridge and Horsham will run between East Croydon and Horsham over Easter (apart from Sunday).

On Sunday, trains will run between Horsham and Victoria (via Redhill).
